Anything in the rodent family, they carry Hanta Virus, Bubonic Plague and probably several other diseases. The Germans in Herman, MO make summer sausage out of coon, tried that and it was pretty good.

You've never killed a mouse or rat? Or did you eat them?

Re: Critters you killed but don’t eat - 07/28/21

Back when I was a youth I ran a trapline and took coyotes, fox, bobcat, coons and muskrats. Just kept the pelt, never the meat. The only animal I have shot while hunting that wasn't eaten was a Vaal Rhebok in South Africa. This is a small species of antelope only found in a small region of RSA and they are filled with parasites. I did not know that until I took one and the PH said it was the only antelope they would not eat. He sliced open a hindquarter after it was skinned for a lifesize mount and the meat was full of worms. He said it didn't bother them but that nothing except buzzards will eat one. Had I known that I would not have taken the animal.

I have never eaten any of those either though I have had no desire to kill at least one of those & may be interested to know why one may be motivated to kill one on this list. if replying please keep it in a PM.

I have eaten coon, but never liked it, just too awful greasy for me. Killed a lot of predators, but never ate one. Never ate snake of any kind. I guess most of the stuff on the no eat list I haven't eaten. Used to eat muskrat when I trapped a lot and had a young family. Never ate insects of any kind (intentionally.)

My Great Granny told about a day back in the depression when Gramps went out with his 410 to try to get something to feed their hungry kids. All he was able to shoot was two crows. She cleaned them and cooked them and they ate them. When pressed she said, “they weren’t very good, their meat is purple”. Hungry hard times in Oklahoma back in those days.

No to hogs, opossum, skunk, predators with fur or feathers, canines, felines, coons, armadillo, crows, rodents, bugs, alligators. Never shot a bear, but wouldn't eat that. Did I mention hogs? Now then if I was in a Donner or Alferd Packer camp condition I would eat it all. I do eat chicken which I guess could be a predator. Try to follow Moses' dietary rules fairly closely.

Shot a coyote pup this morning, in the road down from the house. Bad sick, never looked around at me when I waled up behind him, even though his head was up. Azz was all raw, covered with flies. Put a 9mm behind his ear to end the suffering. Ain’t eatin’ that...

Hogs taste good also but they eat nasty stuff and bears will eat carrion and just about anything. Trichinosis is fairly common in bears and coons. I know you can kill trichinosis worms by cooking but I just avoid carrion eaters. Alligators and turtles are the worst in fresh water and we all know oysters filter fecal matter for food. If you want to bait crawfish use bad smelling dead fish or meat. Can you imagine the water conditions shellfish from China are raised in. Jewish dietary law actually has a lot of good health reasons behind their prohibitions. As did a good many of their other restrictions. Some I don't understand such as mixing 2 different fibers in cloth or 2 different seeds in a crop.

We don’t have enuff fish for bears to gorge on
so that isn’t a problem here.

I haven’t killed a bear but have eaten bear twice.

I don't think that's a health reason and possibly not of physical practicality. I believe that it's an OT. symbolic reminder.

Q: What do the shepherds raise the lambs for?
A: Sacrifices, food and clothing.

Q:. Who was the first shepherd?
What did his sacrifice represent?
What did his brother's represent?
Which one was accepted by God.?

Answer these questions and it may shed light on the O.T. command about mixing of the wool with plant fibers.

And once I started driving and got to shoot all our neighbors wheat fields too. Back then, they were all glad to have them shot out off their wheat crop.

Never ate one. Don’t shoot them anymore. Haven’t killed one in years.

I’ve never ate coons.

Next to hunting camp lived an elderly colored man. Retired from the “Ermy”. He kinda watched over stuff when no one was around. He let us hunt a 40 acre thicker he had and we gave him several deer each season.


One morning i ran some coin traps. Caught prolly 6 or 8. Dispatched them.

Knocked on his door, Mr John. Want a couple fresh coons?

Sure. How many you got? 8.

He came out door, whooping and hollering. Doing the happy dance. Pulled out his ancient flip phone calling ppl. You’d think i given him a stack of t-bones. 😂😂

Fall blackie feeding on blueberries is fine eats.
Hogs taste good also but they eat nasty stuff and bears will eat carrion and just about anything. Trichinosis is fairly common in bears and coons. I know you can kill trichinosis worms by cooking but I just avoid carrion eaters. Alligators and turtles are the worst in fresh water and we all know oysters filter fecal matter for food. If you want to bait crawfish use bad smelling dead fish or meat. Can you imagine the water conditions shellfish from China are raised in. Jewish dietary law actually has a lot of good health reasons behind their prohibitions. As did a good many of their other restrictions. Some I don't understand such as mixing 2 different fibers in cloth or 2 different seeds in a crop.


I don't think that's a health reason and possibly not of physical practicality. I believe that it's an OT. symbolic reminder.

Q: What do the shepherds raise the lambs for?
A: Sacrifices, food and clothing.

Q:. Who was the first shepherd?
What did his sacrifice represent?
What did his brother's represent?
Which one was accepted by God.?

Answer these questions and it may shed light on the O.T. command about mixing of the wool with plant fibers.

We had a local market in town owned by an older couple. He was an old school butcher and kept beagles and coonhounds. Had a “special “ freezer full of coon meat and lots of colored folks who bought it.

Very nasty, can give you brucellosis, leptospirosis, trichinosis, etc. They are scavengers in the wild and eat dead very rotten animals, cattle manure, etc. Anything a buzzard will eat a hog will eat. You should wear gloves and eye protection if you clean one and cook until hot all the way through. I wear gloves and drag them to the back where an alligator finishes the job. I have 2 friends that caught brucellosis gutting wild hogs. It was a lengthy process for the doctor to figure out what was the problem.

One morning i ran some coin traps. Caught prolly 6 or 8. Dispatched them.

Knocked on his door, Mr John. Want a couple fresh coons?

Sure. How many you got? 8.

He came out door, whooping and hollering. Doing the happy dance. Pulled out his ancient flip phone calling ppl. You’d think i given him a stack of t-bones. 😂😂


When we were trapping and killing coons some were skinned and some were sold whole frozen depending on who was buying.

There were some blacks that loved them, told us they'd pay for them, we just gave them away.

Found out later they not only ate them but were selling the male coon dicks for good money, seems some of the blacks thought it was big medicine or some such chit. "brother spoon" said he was some kind of preacher but he scammed a lot of blacks with stuff like "court powder", tell them to sprinkle some on their head before they went into the court house and they'd be let off easy.

I half expected to see Mizz Rudolph and a 3 legged monkey around there anytime.

We've killed, skinned, and eaten a slew of young hogs and they are excellent. Nobody has ever gotten sick, etc and wouldn't be a problem if you cook them right. Most all have bugs/fleas though, and I dont' like that.

Copy that, only wild pigs I’ve ate are Hawian pigs, little different diet over there, great table fare.

They do taste good but are a known source of many zoonotic diseases. I used to eat pork but often ended up with a headache so I quit. Then wild hogs moved in on our pastures and I saw first hand how nasty they are. The zoonoses they can transfer to humans is probably the source of the dietary prohibitions on pork by Moslems and Jews. So I carefully with gloves tie onto a hog and take it to the gators.

Yes JG, there are a lot of FOODS that can make you
sick IF NOT prepared properly.

There are instructions for nearly all foods, including
pork.

Feral hogs are the SAME as tame/farm/market
raised EXCEPT they escaped into nature -* where they came from*-
as some call it “the Wild”. LOL

I’m not a Jew or Muzzie. I’ve been eating Pork ALL my life.
Feral hogs are free roaming. YUM YUM

Guys, to you unbelievers, I recommend you read instructions for preparing Pork
AND handling (after they DED) feral hogs.
It’s easy and delicious.

Some NVA and VC, a couple of bikers in San Pedro, I have no problem w/ cannibals but don't know how to cook people. I guess if you follow the guidelines for pork you should be OK.
